Install Portworx with Ansible


This document presents a non-Kubernetes method of installing a Portworx cluster. Please refer to the Portworx on Kubernetes page if you want to install Portworx on Kubernetes.

Installing

To install with Ansible, please use the Ansible Galaxy Role

Upgrading

If you have installed Portworx with Ansible, Portworx needs to be upgraded through the CLI on a node-by-node basis. Please see the upgrade instructions

Scaling

For Ansible, as long as the same kvdb and clusterID are used, any new nodes can automatically join an existing cluster. Also, be sure to exclude existing nodes from the inventory before running the playbook on the new nodes.
